American Joint Replacement Research-Collaborative (AJRR-C)

Data-driven joint replacement research

  • The AJRR-C leverages big data resources, such as registries and databases, for total joint replacement research.
  • The AJRR-C facilitates innovative interdisciplinary clinical research to improve care and outcomes for patients receiving total joint replacements (arthroplasty).

    Its research involves linking existing and new data about patients receiving joint replacements from multiple data sources at Mayo Clinic and from national data drawn from the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), which is part of a family of national orthopedic surgery subspecialty registries maintained by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). A major goal of this collaboration is to build additional multicenter collaborations nationally to support a burgeoning community of researchers involved in registry science.
